Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer downplayed comparisons to Ontario Premier Doug Ford Thursday, saying he's been upfront about where a Scheer government would cut to afford his promised tax cuts.

Speaking to Newstalk 1010 host John Moore Thursday morning, Scheer was asked why his campaign appears to be avoiding the polarizing premier despite targeting many of the seats won by Ford in the last provincial election.

Moore pointed out that Scheer has seemed reluctant to even mention the premier by name on his travels through the seat-rich Toronto suburbs.
